‘I’m over halfway done with the catch-up! Let’s get to Episode 4!
We get to the action pretty quickly with Sarah’s arrival, and Raven instantly knows that she is going to go after Adam. During the shutdown, Raven and Sarah stayed at Adam’s place and Raven walked in on the two of them cuddling. Knowing that he and Raven had been on a date, Sarah checks with Adam about where they stand. He acknowledges that he and Raven had a great date but also says he would say yes if she asked him. During girl chat time, Raven gives her blessing for Sarah to go on the date with Adam but, all of the girls push Ben Z. After not being wowed by her conversation with Ben, Sarah asks Adam on the date.
Sarah and Adam go to dinner and out dancing on their date, and Adam acknowledges that Sarah has an energy, or ‘something’ as he calls it, that Raven does not have. Sarah works to confirm that Adam would have asked her out on a date in the “real world” and they share some kisses. Overall, uneventful.
Back at the resort, Wells and Danielle are chatting at the bar. The friendship between these two is so endearing and they make a deal if they are both single in 5 years they are going to be together. Why wait the 5 years?
The next day, Lacey gets a date card. She is adamant that the person that she takes on the date wants to go because they are romantically interested in her, not because they just want to be friends. As discussed in earlier posts, if she wasn’t so brash and dismissive, I think the men would be much more interested. She’s talking to Ben Z. and says, “As of now it’s not you, but I’ll let you know.” What a way to a man’s heart. Matt plays it best by saying that if she asked him it would be a mostly friendship date because he thinks her and Diggy would have the best time together. Taking his advice, Lacey asks Diggy who accepts.
The two of them go on one of Jorge’s Tour-ges which involves riding horses to a beach where he was conceived. Diggy genuinely seems to be into Lacey, and the two of them have the romantic time that Lacey was looking for.
Back at the resort, Danielle M and Raven are discussing Wells, while Wells and Jack Stone are shown discussing Danielle. Wells tells Jack that he and Danielle went on a date 4 years ago, but he has never wanted to throw away what they have as friends to pursue something more. He says that Danielle is out of his league and that she is one of the best people he’s ever met. Danielle tells Raven that Wells is such a good man, but that he isn’t able to date anyone here in his bartender role. Since that is the case, Danielle doesn’t feel like her ‘person’ is here. She tells Raven that during the filming stoppage she was given the opportunity to go work in Africa, and she doesn’t want to miss that opportunity simply to stay in Paradise for no reason.
Next to arrive in Paradise is Dominique, who tells the ladies that she was interested in Diggy. Lacey is worried about Taylor getting in Dominique’s ear because she doesn’t think that Taylor likes her very much. Taylor does get in Dom’s ear, telling her that she thinks her and Diggy would be a great match. It didn’t seem that Taylor did this with malicious intent, but who knows? Dom does ask Diggy on the date, upsetting Lacey.
Diggy goes on his second date of the day, and he is really into Dom. He tells her that he went on a date with Lacey but he thinks they are on different wavelengths (I guess I was wrong when I thought Diggy was into Lacey). Luckily, he also says that he wants to make sure that Lacey is ok, which keeps Diggy on the side of the good guys.
That night, Danielle is leaving Paradise and everyone is sad to see her go, especially Wells. Wells walks her out to the car AND GIVES HER A BIG KISS. Loving this, loving them. Get married, and have babies, please.
[It’s hard to find funny tweets two weeks late – I’ll pick this section back up while recapping Week 3]
Raven’s swimsuits have been some of my favorite this season, and I thought this army green one was super sexy. I always love tasteful side boob. Raven seems to love the L*Space swimsuits this summer, the Pamela one-piece can be purchased here (just in time for that one Indian summer weekend we hopefully get!).
Both Dominique and Sarah chose floral printed Show Me Your Mumu for their arrival outfits.
I knew as soon as I saw it that Sarah was wearing a Show Me Your Mumu set. I’m a big fan of the brand, and it seems like the ladies of Bachelor Nation are as well (Carly’s bridesmaids’ dresses were also by the brand as well). Sarah’s top can be found here and the bottoms here. Lucky for us, both pieces are on sale!
Dom’s romper can be purchased here and is unfortunately not on sale. Boo!
Two days until the next episode and two episodes left to recap. I think I can do it!
